Audi R8 Spyder carries the Wolverine

Audi is one of the most familiar names in the auto field. Wherever you travel around the world it is impossible not to spot an Audi model on the road. So it is no surprise that it has made room in the movie industry, too. There are plenty of films that carry their stars in Audi vehicles. And it is the case of the brand new film The Wolverine which has just had its premiere in London, on the 18th July. One of the auto stars is the Audi R8 Spyder.

Hugh Jackman has the leading part in the film. Summoned to Japan by an old acquaintance, Wolverine becomes embroiled in a conflict that forces him to confront his own demons. He has to fight life and death battles that will mark his life. During his adventures he rides in the Audi R8 Spyder. The Spyder is capable of boasting an acceleration figure of 3.8 seconds before reaching a top speed of 311 km/h (193 mph). As in car racing, the aerodynamics of the Audi R8 has been optimized for propulsion. The underfloor contains five NACA nozzles, along with two diffusors in the front part, which increase the propulsion at the front axle. The drag coefficient is 0.35 or 0.36 depending on the engine version and body shape; the frontal area measures 1.99 m2 (21.42 ft2).

Regarding the figures of the Audi R8 Spyder, there is no wonder that it has been chosen for an action film such as The Wolverine. The sports car matches perfectly to the ambient of the film. Besides the R8 Spyder, there are also present an Audi A8 L and the Ducati Diavel. Whether or not the film will be a huge success it remains to be seen. However, the Audi R8 Spyder will make many people in the audience sigh.
